AHC SAFE & LOCK Bill Partington’s WE BRING SECURITY TO YOU

Longest Patent Protection in the Industry - 2024

What is High-Security hardware?


Different than a conventional Lock; a High-Security Lock houses a special cylinder that prevents the lock from being “picked” open or “bump-keyed” by an un-authorized individual. Even if they possess Locksmith Tools.


What is Key Control?


Knowing who has your keys & who is authorized to make duplicates is imperative in managing your security.  High-Security Keys work together with the cylinder to ensure the integrity of the system.  These keys are specific to the Locksmith who installs the hardware and must have the proper credentials to receive a duplicate(s)  from the Locksmith;  No one else has access to this key.


Which option is the best for me?

There are many different styles and name brands  of High-Security Locks on the market today that all serve the same purpose.  Some will work with your existing hardware, while others require the use of a new deadbolt or handle; most manufacturers  offer their cylinder with finishes that are commonly found on most homes.  Some fancy handle sets and knobs will also accept a High-Security Cylinder.  Let us know what your expectations are and we will find the one that’s right for you.  Some  Brand Examples of High Security Locks are Medeco, Primus by Schlage, Mul-T-Lock,  and Scorpion to name a few.


How do I choose where the Locks go?

Put simply, any exterior door that accesses the home should have a High-Security Cylinder installed in the deadbolt.  Every home should have at least 2 access points.  If you have more than two exterior doors they can be dealt with as well without the use of high security locks, just let us know when you call and we will advise as to which is the best method for your situation.


How much does it cost?

The better question is... How much is it worth?  For the Homeowner who wants to ensure that a key doesn’t get copied by the wrong person, or to have the piece of mind that the lock cannot be “bumped” in the middle of the night.....it’s priceless.  There are, however, several factors that can play a part in the total cost of the system.  Depending on the existing hardware on your home and the brand of High Security Lock that you choose, we can find a Security Solution that best fits your needs and your wallet.
